Neural Therapy involves the injection of Procaine (also known as Novocaine), a common local anesthetic, into various but very specific areas. Procaine can safely be injected into the nerves of the autonomic nervous system, peripheral nerves, scars, glands, acupuncture points, trigger points, and other tissues.
Neural Therapy is based on the theory that trauma can produce long-standing disturbances in the electrochemical function of tissues. Sources of these disturbances can include surgery, infections, injuries, accidents, emotional traumas, etc.
How does Neural Therapy work?
Locally, procaine causes an increase in blood flow, is anti-inflammatory, and has analgesic effects.
Procaine also has systemic effects through its ability to reset the membrane potential of cells and restore normal function. Whenever a cell has lost its normal membrane potential, ion pumps in the cell wall stop working. This means that abnormal minerals and toxic substances accumulate inside the cell. As a result, the cell loses the ability to heal itself. Procaine acts on the cell wall to allow the ion pumps to resume normal action and restore the membrane potential. By reestablishing the normal electrical condition of cells and nerves, the disturbed functions are also restored to normality, and the patient returns to health.
Will Neural Therapy replace all other therapies?
Neural Therapy is just another modality available to you. Combining it with a personalized naturopathic program will provide the best results.
How many Neural Therapy treatments are typically necessary?
Sometimes one treatment will resolve the problem. More often, patients experience a partial improvement after each treatment. Three to six treatments are the average number to achieve lasting resolution of a chronic condition.
What will I experience?
Patients usually report minimal discomfort and often there is immediate relief. After a treatment (which may include several injections), patients can experience emotional release, numbness around the injection sites, and lightheadedness. All of these responses are important in the healing process.
